Biography

I received my B.A. in French from Willamette University in 2010.  The following year, I was an assistante de langue vivante in the academy of Besancon.  Upon returning to the U.S., I had the opportunity of being an assistant in a Grade 2/3 French immersion classroom in Kansas City, Missouri, the experience of which inspired me to explore the acquisition of French as a second language, which I came to UT to pursue.  Once here, I discovered a natural curiosity for the history of French, particularly for the effects it has had on other languages due to (imperialistic) contact, both historically and currently.
